1 It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality such as is unknown even among pagans ??that a man has taken his father's wife! 2 And yet you are puffed up! You ought much rather to be mourning the loss of a member! Expel the perpetrator of such a crime! 3 For my part, present with you in spirit though absent in body, I have already, as in your presence, passed sentence on such an offender as this, 4 by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ; I have met with you in spirit, and by the power of our Lord Jesus 5 I have consigned that individual to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, in order that his spirit may be saved on the Day of the Lord Jesus.
6 Your boasting is no credit to you. Do you not know that a morsel of dough will leaven the whole lump? 7 Clean out the old dough that you may be a fresh lump. For you are free from the old leaven; Christ our paschal lamb has been sacrificed. 8 So let us celebrate our festival, not with any old leaven, not with vice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of innocence and integrity.
9 In my letter I wrote that you were not to associate with the immoral. 10 I did not mean you were literally to avoid contact with the immoral in this world, with the lustful and the thievish, or with idolaters; in that case you would have to leave the world altogether. 11 What I now write is that you are not to associate with any so-called brother who is immoral or lustful or idolatrous or given to abuse or drink or robbery. Associate with him! Do not even eat with him! 12 Outsiders it is no business of mine to judge. No, you must judge those who are inside the church, for yourselves; 13 as for outsiders, God will judge them. Expel the wicked from your company.
